Surprise!! SQL Server 2008 R2 has new PowerShell Cmdlets…

Yes!!  I just found out the new version of SQL Server 2008 R2 has new PowerShell Snapin called “MasterDataServicesSnapin” and it will give 7 new cmdlets:

New-MasterDataServicesDatabase – Creates a Master Data Services database.

Get-MasterDataServicesDatabase – Gets information about a Master Data Services database.

Get-MasterDataServicesDatabases – Gets information about Master Data Services databases on a specified instance of SQL Server.

Get-MasterDataServicesDatabaseServerInformation – Gets connection information for a specified instance of SQL Server.

Get-MasterDataServicesIISInformation – Gets information about Internet Information Services (IIS) on the local computer.

Set-MasterDataServicesSystemSetting – Sets the value of a specified system setting in a Master Data Services database.

Remember! To make these cmdlets available just use the cmdlet to add the pssnapins:
